Most of the time for grouse I use a ruger 10/22 out of the tree tops not on the fly. The rest of the time I use an 870 20 ga, or a red label.

depending on conditions and likely hood of running into other game such as jumping ducks and such while hunting the choices are for me
a 1968 Franchi Falconet 20ga M/IC 26" (when not shooting steel)
a Franchi AL48, new one, to match my hunting partners 1965 model
and new this year a Benelli M1 20ga that i found brand new in the package and is identical set up to my M2 i use for duck hunting.
I will get to try it out on doves in a few days.

light weight 11-87 upland in 20 gauge for me is a dream, I use it for all birds in the field except ducks of course.. and better ammo loads are key such as target loads- they pattern better than inexpensive promo loads and drop birds on a dime, the auto is quickerfor follow up shots such as grouse and you have the 3rd shell if necessary

I use a Browning Lightning O/U in 20 gauge for my grouse hunting unless the weather is particularly nasty. Then I'll use my new Mossberg 930 waterfowler. They powers that be are talking about going to non lead shot here in Washington for all upland game. Makes me nervous as my Browning was purchased at an estate sale in 1962 so I don't think it would be prudent to shoot steel through it.
